It’s essential that the impacted flooded areas be evacuated of water and dried out as soon as possible to help prevent the spread of mold, mildew, bacteria, germs and odors. It may be possible to start the water removal process on your own using wet-dry vacs and pumps. However, this presents a safety hazard for you and just delays professional help. Though, if you wish to attempt to get started, follow these steps:
- Remove as much water as possible
- Dry out the impacted areas using dehumidifiers and fans
- Open doors and windows for fresh air if weather permits
- Move belongings and furniture to dry out in a separate area, such as a garage
